: To increase the pool of high-level users we need to reduce even more the burden to install and distribute packages independently. To do this we bring back the idea of allowing `pkg` to download and install directly from a url to a `.zip` file or `.tar.gz` file, e.g. `pkg install 'https://myrepo.org/mypackage.zip'`
: There will be no checks (nor quality standard) on these packages and the user should be clearly warned about the insecurity (y/n answer?).
:: * Should `pkg update` also work for these packages? Maybe no. Just re-run the install command.
:: * We need to provide guidelines, recommendations and tools for people trying to distribute their packages. We are doing something in this direction, but we need a little boost here: https://octave.sourceforge.io/templates/Makefile, https://sourceforge.net/p/octave/example-package/ci/default/tree/
